#TNTConfidential 12 Days of Christmas - GIVEAWAY- Day 9- Freddy Mackay & Finding Home 1 and 2

Day 9! Already?! Santa will soon be here, but meanwhile the lovely Freddy MacKay is substituing him in today's  #TNTConfidential 12 Days of Christmas! 

What is your favorite thing about the Holidays?

My favorite thing about the holidays is the time people make for others. Family and friends remember how important we are to each other and make that extra effort to show their love and appreciation for one another.

What inspired you to write your book?

Snowed In: Finding Home 2 was inspired by a message from a friend. I don't honestly remember the message but it made me think of what would Geeves do if he had o go Christmas shopping by himself. ;)

Share a Holiday anecdote with the readers 

Elyzabeth asked us to share a holiday story with all of you. I wish I could share pictures of my Christmas story, but sadly, I cannot. Not due to the lack of pictures, however. The problem was, I had nothing to take pictures of. What pictures you ask? You know how when the family gathers around the Christmas trees and gives each others gifts and someone is there snapping pictures of half asleep adults desperately trying to stay awake long enough to experience the children's enthusiastic responses to the new toys they got? Yeah. Those. Well, if you don't happen to get any presents from your family or Santa that year, then you don't get your picture taken. That's right. My family forgot to get me any presents. They all thought someone else had gone and gotten something for me. And Santa forgot too. Now don't get to upset. Once my family realized what happened, they did feel awful, and I made out like a bandit the next Christmas. ;)

Snowed In: Finding Home 2

Home for the Holidays. Always good times, no?

A short Christmas trip home should be more relaxing for Geeves and Max than their normal graduate school studies. At least, it was supposed to be. Unfortunately, Max's sister, Courtney, has had an abrupt change in attitude and behavior, making the once amenable teenager a nightmare to deal with. Geeves's ex-boyfriend popping up at an inopportune time doesn't help matters.

A shopping trip to the mall proves to be Geeves's downfall, though, when his heart makes a purchase that will change all of their lives. A purchase that sends Courtney running smack dab into a snowstorm and Geeves chasing after the confused girl.

Snowed In: Finding Home 2 is the sequel to the story Moving Mountains: Finding Home 1.

Nerd. Geek. Dense. Stupid. Social reject. George had heard it all growing up. Being an Aspy, a person with Aspergers, he had gotten used to never fitting in and not understanding people. His doctorate became his life, and unexpectedly, so did a fellow grad student in his lab. But when the relationship ended with George getting dumped unceremoniously by email and left to handle the gossip alone, George wasn't sure his heart could handle being in a relationship again and decided it was best to focus on his thesis.

A year later things hadn't changed. Well, except a restlessness eating away at George that had started six months earlier. A field research trip to gather more data might just be the thing he needs. Luckily his friend and lab assistant, Max, is out in the field with him. Little did he know this trip would change their relationship permanently, something his heart might not be ready for.

About Freddy

I grew up and went to college in the Midwest where I currently reside with my family. I spend most of my time playing sports and running around outside. And honestly, that much has not changed since I was little, except who is included my activities. I also have a healthy geocaching addiction. It's so much fun! I enjoy spending my time traveling when I can, and I hold the view that a person should continually to learn about new things and people whenever possible.
